2008 Honda Element EX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


This was my wife and I's first new car. Got it initially because we have 2 great Danes and they grew out of our '88 civic. Was drawn to the safety features and the 2.4 L 4 cyl, since it has a timing chain and not a belt. We use Honda's synthetic oil and put a k&n air filter in it and have gotten 29 mpg (doing 65 mph) before. Most trips we average 23-26 doing 75 though. The 4 cyl. is punchy and I most always have plenty of power.

Best Features

Safety, easy to clean, clamshell tailgate, awd, several seating positions, overhead storage basket, power.

Worst Features

5th seat would be nice, better center console, go back to the non-painted wheel wells at ALL trim levels, seats are really stiff, diesel option(better mpg, towing, etc?)
